Stephen Curry’s level of play this season could be described as electric, giving the Warriors the spark needed to set the NBA’s all-time wins record. That electricity is the inspiration behind the latest colorway of his Under Armour signature shoe.
“When Stephen gets going, his game can be described as a nonstop series of electric sparks,” the brand said about the latest Curry Two iteration in a statement today. “For the opponent, it’s intense to get caught up in his almost electric-like explosions. For the fans, it’s a vibrant show.”
The shoe boasts an electric blue and gray upper, with hints of navy blue. Electric blue also is seen on its midsole, accompanied by navy blue toward the front of the shoe. The latest iteration is completed with a white outsole.
The Curry Two is Under Armour’s first basketball shoe to use a full-length Charged Cushioning midsole unit and a UA SpeedForm seamless upper.
Curry and the Warriors defeated the Memphis Grizzlies, 125-104, on Wednesday at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif., ending the regular season with a 73-9 record, besting the 72-10 mark set by Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls during the 1995-96 season. During the win, Curry eclipsed 400 3-pointers made this season, ending the 2015-16 campaign with 402.
The Warriors, last season’s NBA champs, face the Houston Rockets in the first round of playoffs, which begin this weekend.
